    I saw this, and felt so conflicted, was gonna start a thread but just couldn't without getting a bit emotional.

    I'm mad at her for taking the money. Forgive, I have to. But the anger is still present at the moment.

    Fuck the religious right. Hypocrites need to read their own text.

    God was pro-abortion. Not just pro-choice.

    Give your wife the poison water if she cheats on you, kill that baby which wasn't formed from your seed, you the man who owns that woman through marriage. Fuck that shit. Fuck all of it.

    Pro-life is not pro-life. It's Pro-CONTROL. Control of women's rights and reproductive choices.

    I am plenty emotional. Operation Rescue members threw trash on me as I was escorting women into clinics for a full array of healthcare. Including a woman losing her son, but no hospital would see her.

    You just gain your composure more efficiently than I ever could.

    You're fucking inspiring and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the fact that you exist on this Earth.

    Edit. Thank you for everything you've done. From walking with women through those idiots protesting human rights, to helping me with everything I've been dealing with, to just sharing what you share here with us.

    I've tried so hard to do that, but I can't. I thoroughly feel and experience every moment, every thought I suffer as a human in this flesh. .

    For reals, because of what you share with us here, and what you've shared with me (which is between only you and I, forever) I have made steps forward. A few people here have helped in similar ways. These threads, the stories you share about the things you've seen and done, they impact the fuck out of me. On levels.

    I am pro choice. I do not fucking apologize. At. All. Reproductive health is health. Physical, and mental. AND mental.

    the dissociation is an old coping mechanism. I don’t recommend it, but it pops up, unbidden.

    and I fucking love you

    It's gotta be better than feeling every single second, as intensely as possible every time a triggering moment falls into your lap.

    Grass is always greener, I suppose.

    Fucking love you woman.

    You might yet get there. I didn’t zone out for years, and it started up again about 15 years ago.
    The trauma was when I was a wee Begonia. Latchkey years.

    Very interesting, the use of grifter.

    she also walked away from her partner, because the Right can’t have a big ol dyke. (Massive Eyeroll)

    I didn't think that was the best choice of words, being that she didn't seek out these "religious" people to gain financial benefit.

    The fact that she took the money knowing the impact it would have for so many women/families? Leaves a terrible taste in my mouth.

    Don't always agree with the analogy given by TYT, but thought it was worth posting for the sake of discussion.

    Can you explain what you mean? Trying to understand.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this sometime when I'm in the right headspace. I give her snaps for being willing to be Roe, but I don't like the rest. I understand looking out for yourself, but dang... at what cost? I can't imagine not living an authentic life. So sad.

    The argument that God is against abortion is false, which is the whole argument made by the "religious right".

    That part about the poison water, that's in the Bible. God tells men to give their wives poison water if they cheat. If she miscarries, it was not his baby and it deserved to die because it wasn't a baby created by a married, religiously valid couple.

    God is not against abortion. In fact, for cheating wives he insists on terminating that baby. According to the text.

    Why evangelicals keep making that argument is beyond me.

    New one by me, but I have never dug into it, either. While personally I'm pro-life, my vote is pro-choice. I don't think I should be able to tell anyone what they can/can't do anymore than I like someone telling me what I can/can't.

    FWIW, I rarely consider the Old Testament in how I live my life... there's so much i the OT that I just find bizarro. I default to "Jesus says to love" and let that be that.
